Product description


"Ideal for both the armchair traveler and the on-site visitor, Basilicata: Authentic Italy is exceptionally well written, organized and presented. Impressively informed and informative, Basilicata: Authentic Italy deftly showcases both the famously well known and the obscure off-the-beaten-path sights to see, places to visit, and people to meet. Especially recommended reading for anyone contemplating or embarking on a visit to Italy, Basilicata: Authentic Italy will prove to be an immediately welcome and enduringly popular addition to personal, professional, community, and academic library Contemporary Italian Travel Guide collections and reading lists." - Midwest Book Review

"Taking the road less traveled led Haid to explore Basilicata.... (She) participates in local festivals to honor saints, visits beaches, and explores the country's largest national park... There are descriptions of crispy peppers, truffles, and black chickpeas that will entice even the most particular of foodies.... As a solo woman traveler, Haid takes everything in stride, and her meetings with residents are the best parts of the journey. Visitors looking for an authentic experience need not look far-everything in Basilicata is authentic. VERDICT: An intimate exploration of an often overlooked region of Italy. Recommended to readers who appreciate all things Italian." - Library Journal
